Cute Homeware Wishlist

From L to R: Decorative Plate £4 Asda, Wild Animals Duvet Cover from £10 Asda, Caticones Cushion £1.50 Asda, Marie Trinket Dish £5 Primark, Disney Aladdin Tea Towel Set £5 Primark.

This spring season, Primark and Asda are absolutely killin' it with their homeware collections. Asda have brought out a Bohemian Brights collection which will definitely inject some colour into your home, with bright colours and a bold mix of textures, it will definitely add some sass to your living space.
Primark have gone down the disney route with their homeware collection, and this year they brought out the most talked about collection ever! Based on the ever so cute Marie the cat from The Aristocats movie. Both collections are my absolute favourite and I had to share my top five items.

Decorative Plate £4 Asda *bought*
When I saw this, it was instant attraction. I mean look at it! A cute cat plate with a floral design and a high gloss finish that is bound compliment all interiors. This purrfect piece will be a popular item choice amongst cat lovers and kitsch lovers. It definitely is worth the price since it looks much more expensive than it really is. I am so happy I have this to start my collection off. Link

Wild Animals Duvet Cover from £10 Asda
This tropical-inspired print is gorgeous! This duvet cover is double sided too! The vibrant print of zebras, flamingos, lions and giraffes is just adorable. I love the colours and the print together, it works really well. I think I am starting to become that person that needs to buy every. single. bedding that has a cute print on it, haha. Link

Caticones Cushion £1.50 Asda
Ok so this had to be added without a thought. A brilliant blue cushion with a cute cat ice cream print (heart emoji eyes) what amazed me was the price! This lil cushion is such a star buy! I just hope it's in store in store when I pop in because I so NEED this! A summery and adorable cushion with lovely pom pom detailing. Link

Marie Trinket Dish £5 Primark *bought*
Not that I needed another trinket dish but omg this was too cute to just leave on the shelf. I absolutely LOVE this. This is perfect for keeping jewellery, spare change, bobby pins or even your keys. I think it's really made well for the price and this would also make a great gift option for someone or for yourself even. Looks great on my dresser too! Link

Disney Aladdin Tea Towel Set £5 Primark
How cute would this look in your kitchen? I absolutely love the pom pom detailing and the Jasmine print. If you're obsessed with Jasmine from Aladdin then this is perfect for you. Again, just like bedding.. I think I will end up buying all of the tea towels just because of the cute colours/prints. Link

Australian Bodycare Any Time Balm* Review

I thought I had tried all of the multi-use skincare products that were available but I was SO wrong, meet my new favourite game changer! The any time balm by Australian Bodycare!
This is my first ever product from the brand AB and I am glad it's stocked up in places like look fantastic and QVC. Read on to see how I used this product and why it worked for me.

Product description:
A rich creamy emollient balm for all skin types but especially good for blemished and dry flaking skin 
Containing several key active ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil, Bisabolol, Soya and macadamia making the formula unique and effective.
Can be used “any time” and for almost all skin conditions 
Vegan & Vegetarian friendly

There is quite a generous amount of product to use and the pot is just the 'right' size so it's easy to travel with and use on the go.
There are many uses for this product and I mainly use it for three purposes. One of the uses is that I apply and massage my cuticles and I have noticed quite a difference now, they aren't as dry and I feel that it has given my nails and hands a much more healthier appearance. The second use is for my lips, when I feel my lips are feeling oh so chapped and dry, I then apply this. Generously. It not only soothes my lips but it also brings my lips back to normal. The added tea tree oil is an antiseptic so it would kill off any bacteria which was causing my lips to be so uncomfortable.. I blame the cold harsh winds. Finally the third use is to apply onto any larger drier areas such as my elbows or anywhere I feel needs a huge moisture boost. The texture of this balm is amazing. It is somewhat in a solid form but once you scoop some into your fingers, it instantly melts and becomes an amazing consistency to work with. In terms of scent, I can only detect the tea tree oil scent, it's not particularly one of my favourite scents but it doesn't bother me whilst using this. A product that really works and is worth having in your skincare collection.

Lush Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb Review

Meet the cutest bath bomb EVER! This was the last Lush bath bomb from my stash and I knew I had to review this, how could I not? this cute lil chap is a bath bomb designed for children and it's such a lovely idea. Bath treats aimed at smaller people too but that being said, even though it's aimed at children, adults can use it too. Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is designed to help you relax before bedtime and with one of the main ingredients being lavender, it is bound to calm and relax you just before bedtime.

About this bath bomb...
A gentle lavender bath bomb to relax children before bedtime. This is a bath bomb designed to look after young children’s delicate skin, and is so gentle it’s suitable for babies over six months. Its aromatherapy oils also work to soothe irritable cherubs before bedtime. Lavender is a calming aromatherapy oil, used in traditional medicine to treat skin irritations, sunburn and insect bites.

This fizzed away quickly leaving a brilliant trail of blue. My bath water did not appear to be a bright blue though, just a tint of blue which is exactly what you would need to relax and unwind since a brighter colour would defeat the purpose. The lavender scent was definitely there but it wasn't too overpowering. The added chamomile blue oil is a great ingredient in this bath product too since this soothed the skin, having said that this would be a great option for us adults after shaving if you have sensitive skin. I enjoyed this mini bath bomb and I think I will continue to use it as a midweek treat to unwind and let my skin soak up all that comforting goodness. A rather cheap and cheerful treat that does the job.

Lush Easter 2018 Top Picks

Easter is finally here and Lush have brought out another array of cute bath products that are just all so cute and eggs-cellent, the pastel colours and egg shaped bath products totally reminds me of spring and I just had to share my top four products from this year.

🐇🐣💗Starting from the left:

🐣Which Came first? Bath Bomb £6.95 each
An uplifting bath bomb, this bath product contains grapefruit oils and sicilian lemon oils which is bound to create one happy bath and coupled with a bright pink and yellow colour combination this will also turn your bath water into a magnificent colour too! One to definitely pick up!

🐣Free Rangers Bath Bomb £6.95 each
The cutest looking out of the bunch! Quite a cleverly named product too, this bath bomb is available in three colours: orange, purple and blue. These fun bath bombs contains bergamot oil and blackcurrant absolute so this is something for all the fruity lovers out there! This one smells just like fruit pastel ice lollies too! This product will definitely be loved alot on Instagram.

🐣Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt £4.95 each
LOVE glitter? then this is made for you. This bath bomb melt contains brazillian orange and honey and also contains fair trade organic cocoa butter, bergamot and almond oil so this will definitely give you super soft and moisturised skin. I wish this was available all year round. I believe this has the same scent as Honey I Washed The Kids soap, so if you adore sweet scents like toffee then go and grab these!!

🐣Cream Egg Bubbleroon £3.75 each
Available in three designs: circles, spotty and marbled. Another cute bath product that screams easter. My personal favourite! This has the scent of mint chocolate and contains fair trade organic cocoa and shea butters which will really soften the skin and the added spearmint will boost your mood and tone up the skin. Not only that... this will also colour your bath a beautiful neon colour too. The perfect bath product.
